Brazil fines Facebook $1mn in Cambridge Analytica scandal

Jan 01, 2020 19:57 IST

Brazil’s Ministry of Justice has imposed a 6.6 million-real ($1.6 million) fine on Facebook for its role in the Cambridge Analytica scandal. The ministry said in a statement that it found that the data of about 443,000 Facebook users was improperly made available to developers of the app "thisisyourdigitallife” for “questionable” purposes. It further added that the US tech giant failed to inform users about the consequences of their privacy settings. Meanwhile, Reuters reported that Facebook has considered appealing against the decision.
